Things to consider before making a gift of life insurance 

  • It’s important to remember that you’ll need to use our full legal name when making a gift of life insurance. Please use “The Canadian National Institute for the Blind” on all legal documents.  

  • The amount of money you pay in premiums will depend on several factors, including your age, payment schedule and whether you’re male or female. We can give you more information about premium amounts when you give us a call. 

  • ​In addition to making a new life insurance policy in CNIB’s name, you can also transfer the ownership of an existing policy to CNIB.
